Value City (SP) Ltd opened its 16th branch at Shop n Save complex in Nabua on Wednesday and marketing and public relations manager Monica Chute said they were fortunate that the space was available in the very busy location.
“We like to provide services for our customers convenience so this locality is perfect in the sense that we are at the crossroads of foot traffic, bus route and ample parking space,” said Ms Chute.
“It is actually a one-stop shopping complex with services of a supermarket, a hardware store, the butcher, Post Office and now Value City. So this is a very convenient location where shoppers can get everything done in one location rather than driving around.”
She said the branch in Nabua had 14 staff members, but when and if required an auxiliary team would come in to assist them.
The newly-opened branch in Nabua also has a special section devoted to weddings with lovely bridal gowns and shoes on display.
“The ‘Value Bride’ is our first specialty boutique. We would like to assist brides-to-be with stress-free solutions while they are planning their big day.
“We have an array of wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses and related items available,” said Ms Chute.
She said they intended to have a different theme/concept showcased every month.
